Re: [xsl] difficulties with exclude-result-prefixes and xsl:copy

Your approach is right: you have the 'idenetity transform' which
copies everything.

Now just add templates to specify the differences:

Get rid of xql:result, copying its children (i.e. the
Apps:ProductStructure element) :-

<xsl:template match="xql:result">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="*" />

And delete the ino:id attribute:

<xsl:template match="@ino:id" />

>Hi.  I'm not sure how to do this the correct way.  I have the following XML:
>  <Aps:ProductStructure ino:id='4' xmlns:Aps='' id='1'>
>    <Aps:AssemblyName>bar</Aps:AssemblyName>
>    <Aps:AlternateAssemblyName>testc</Aps:AlternateAssemblyName>
>    <Aps:PartNumber>r20359</Aps:PartNumber>
>    <Aps:Name>bar part 4</Aps:Name>
>    <Aps:Description>this is just test data</Aps:Description>
>    <Aps:PartRelationship>
>      <Aps:PreviousAssembly id='0'>
>        <Aps:Name>NSS-10 satellite</Aps:Name>
>        <Aps:QuantityPreviousAssembly>1</Aps:QuantityPreviousAssembly>
>      </Aps:PreviousAssembly>
>      <Aps:Component id='2'>
>        <Aps:Name>bolts</Aps:Name>
>      </Aps:Component>
>      <Aps:Component>
>        <Aps:Name>nuts</Aps:Name>
>      </Aps:Component>
>    </Aps:PartRelationship>
>    <Aps:AsBuilt>
